Justin Kling of Apartment Savvy Comments on the Affects of Foreclosures on Chicago Landlords and Tenants

Share Article

The skyrocketing rate of foreclosures is affecting landlords, and in turn it is affecting renters. Justin Kling, cofounder of Apartment Savvy Chicago, was recently asked to comment on the issue for an ABC 7 Chicago news story.

Foreclosures have become a huge problem with the current state of the lending market, which has had an unexpected affect on the Chicago rental apartments market. A recent ABC 7 Chicago news story, featuring Justin Kling of Apartment Savvy, explored how the drastic increase in foreclosures is affecting Chicago landlords and tenants.

The rate of foreclosures has doubled in recent years, according to the local ABC affiliate, and half of those can be tracked to Chicago landlords and investors. This has had unexpected affects on the people living in Chicago rental apartments, because when the owners lose the property the tenants have no choice but to move. This often results in the loss of security deposits and the uprooting of children from the neighborhoods and schools they have become accustomed to living in.

The Chicago landlords are often victims in these foreclosures, though, according to Justin Kling of Apartment Savvy. As the co-founder of Chicago's premiere apartment locating service, Kling says he has seen many landlords forced into foreclosure because their tenants have neglected to pay and they have been unable to evict them. With so many homeowners one mortgage payment away from foreclosure, it is easy for landlords to find themselves in foreclosure.

Apartment Savvy has a positive relationship with many stable Chicago landlords and property managers, however, and they do their best to bring together tenants and property owners that will have a harmonious business relationship. By prescreening tenants and forming close ties with owners and managers of the best Chicago apartments, they hope to avoid these undesirable situations.
